This homily is abased on John 6:51-58.
Last night someone who had gone to an anticipated Sunday Mass bumped into me and surprised me with his reaction. He said: “The Bread of Life?! Again?!”
He’s right. This is the third Sunday that the Gospel reading has been about the Bread of Life–and what he doesn’t know yet is that it won’t be the last. Next Sunday will still be about the Bread of Life! I told him, “If you think listening to it for the nth time is hard, try writing a homily about it for the nth time!”
